Sometimes if I feel too tired to exercise and it's tempting to just skip it. But then i remember how peaceful and relaxed I feel once I get into the groove of my lap swimming. I focus on how good and invigorated I feel once I've finished working out and next thing I know my bag is backed and I'm out the door to the gym. After I've finished working out I'm always proud of myself and glad I resisted the urge to skip it. 237
